NARS Hardwired Eyeshadow ($22.00 for 0.04 oz.) are a wet/dry formula that “can be applied dry or with a dampened brush for stronger intensity.” It is a very glittery formula, and naturally, it performed significantly better when used with a dampened brush or an adhesive base. Applied dry, they were typically sheer to semi-sheer with light to moderate fallout when blended out on my lid. They lasted between five and seven hours with light to moderate fallout. Applied wet, they were typically semi-opaque to opaque with minimal fallout when blended out and minimal to slight fallout during wear (about eight hours). The consistency was soft, slightly drier/chunkier, but they the base colors were blendable and easy enough to use. I did find that they applied decently over primer when applied dry compared to on bare skin.
My personal favorites were: Pointe Noire, Stud, Hellcat, and Earthshine — if used with a dampened brush, though. For me, they can add a lot of depth and shine to a look when they’re used with a dampened brush, but if you’re not someone who normally takes that step, I’d look elsewhere.
